Leiden University, TU Delft and Erasmus University Rotterdam have set out their plans for collaboration in a joint memorandum entitled ‘Adding Value’.
Leiden is a typical university city, hosting the oldest university in the Netherlands (1575). The University permeates the local surroundings; University premises are scattered throughout the city, and the students who live and study in Leiden give the city its relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere.
Leiden University is one of Europe's foremost research universities. This prominent position gives our graduates a leading edge in applying for academic posts and for functions outside academia.
The core values of Leiden University are set out in the Strategic Plan 2010-2014.
